2022.02.23 – Understanding Data

Seekerz

Understanding DataBy Dale E. Lee2022.02.23 One of the first questions people ask in Family History is which desktop utility should I use? The answer is, it depends. It depends on the functionality you would like to have for inputting, searching and reporting on data. But a more important question to answer is what data is being stored and how is it stored. If you understand how data is stored internally it makes it easier to understand how the desktop utility interacts with that data. All data is stored in computers as either objects or as relations. Data can be stored […]

2022.02.16 – A New Perspective

Seekerz

The Grumpy Old Man has a New Perspective Genealogy and Family History. Are they the same? Yes and No. I read an article and it gave me a new perspective. Genealogy is the research side of the Adventure. Family History is the story side that brings the Adventure alive. Both are equally important. I fell into the Genealogy side. I was looking for information to fill in the blanks. I would look for a name to place on a branch of my tree. Once I got the name, on to the next. What I missed is that there’s a lot […]

2022.01.26 – Surprised AGAIN!

Seekerz

The Grumpy Old Man is Surprised AGAIN! I found two Daughters, several Grandkids, and 5 Great Grandkids, all because of my journey in Genealogy. It is hard to believe the joy that came into my life. After my success in finding my Daughters, I went on the hunt for my Parent’s marriage license. One would think that a quick look on the internet should be sufficient. NO SUCH LUCK! So I resorted to Plan B. I asked my cousin if her mother (my Mother’s Sister) had information. Yes! She did, and I collected the CLUES. I was able to find […]

2022.01.19 – A Hard Lesson

Seekerz

The Grumpy Old Man Learned a Hard Lesson This is a hard post to write. I look at posts that admonish new Genealogists to sit down with their Parents, Grandparents, and Older Relatives. That is great advice as far as it goes. As a matter of fact, I took that advice. I asked friends and family if they had Memories, Stories, and Pictures. Afterward I realized that most if not all those I asked were OLDER. Not as old as me, but if they weren’t retired, they were close to it. We, as Genealogists try to document the past, in […]
